Do you do Morning Meeting with your class? Does your class LOVE the "share" portion of Morning Meeting? I used to think this "Show and Tell" stuff was too babyish for my fourth graders, but now I feel like there's never enough time for all the kids to be heard. It's getting to the point where we have to have a weekly sign up.
This product has a sign up sheet for the week. It's designed to save space (a bulletin board was not an option for me). Just make your copies and keep them on a clipboard (or laminate it so it can be used with a marker and reused all year). It also has a list of task that you can assign to students as a way of "signing up."
All you need to do is add your students' names to the boxes and put it near your meeting area. Then choose a "Weekly Share Task" from the lists provided. A list of about 30 ELA and 30 math tasks that are aligned to the 4th grade common core standards are included (as well as 8 third grade standards to ease into the year as you set up this sign up routine). For example, the week after you've taught multiples you might ask students to "write a multiple of 4" if they want to share, or in ELA they might be ready to "write an adjective" as a way of signing up.
